†† As you all know winning is always a lot more fun than losing, and the Tides have been doing there fair share of winning early in in this marathon season. †As the saying goes, time flies when your having fun, I didn’t realize that I had not logged on for a blog in some time. †So, sorry for the absence.†
†† After a rough first series of the year against the Durham Bulls, we have been playing exceptional baseball. †With the work of our outstanding pitching staff, some great defense, and an explosive offense, we managed to wrap off nine wins in a row falling one win short of what I believe was the franchise record of ten in a row.†
†† Even though our season is still very young, we’ve already had two players promoted to the big club in outfielder Lou Montanez, who was absolutely on fire while he was here, and starting pitcher Brad Bergesen, who made his debut against the White Sox going 5 plus innings and earning his first Big League win. †Congrats Bergy!
†† Hopefully we can keep this momentum rolling through the long season, and after an off day today we will pick up tomorrow night against the Braves. †We are set to go at it with a little different line up with Melvin Mora making a rehab start. †So come on out and check us out if your nearby. †There’s nothing like watching some good baseball and we’ve had absolutely perfect baseball weather. †Hope I don’t jinx it.
P.S. †Jon Wilhite is making progress and is on the road to recovery after a successful surgery. †Way to go buddy!†
